What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

For years coaches begged for me to come out for there team however it wasn’t until my junior year that I was able to actually join a team and till my senior year to play a full season. 

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

Most definitely the family I made every year I played nothing can match the memories I have with everyone what I did on the field was great however the brotherhood I’ve created over the 5 years I’ve played with is untouchable. 

What are you looking to achieve as a football player going forward?

I wanna be the best version of me I’m a young-in in this game of football I’ve only been playing for 5 years there’s a lot for me to learn and I wanna learn it each year I found out more and more about my position and ultimately, I feel like that’s what keeps me going so hard. 

If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why? 

Randy Moss is my favorite football player ever I would love to sit down with him and just talk about the sport and just have the guy talk. 

Which one of your family members inspires you the most and why? 

My grandma, I would say she passed away in 2015 from breast cancer. She was a strong lady I watched her get up every morning knowing she was in pain to make sure I had what I needed for school, the positivity she brung into every room, and ultimately she’s the reason why I’m chasing this dream it all started with her belief in me as an athlete, grandson, and person.  

What is your favorite offensive scheme and why? 

The spread offense is the best offense I’ve been a part of in my collegiate career. Spread offenses were made to give the ball to athletes in space, taking your shots deep, while also being able to run it for 150+. It made games simple knowing that defenses were on there toes for 60 mins not knowing what was coming play after play. 

What should we know about Aderias Ealy the person? 

First off I’m a dad to a beautiful daughter in Zi’Riahh Ealy. I’m big on being positive my energy is always high like an energizer bunny I just don’t stop going and I use that to energize those around me. my loyalty runs deep if you do right by me I can guarantee you I’ll do right by you. Finally, I’m a go getter everything I’ve set my mind too I’ve gotten I won’t stop until I reach my goals I don’t care how long it takes, they will be accomplished. 

What stands out about your film the most? 

Without a doubt my speed, explosion, athleticism and my ability to just go get the ball my catch radius is outstanding for someone my size. 

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field? 

With both just separate myself and get some time to clear my head on the field it’s in between drives I can fix it right there and in life take a small little break listen to some music I’ll be fine and ready to go it’s all in your head just don’t overthink anything and you’ll be fine.

What would a team get in a player like you?  

Energy, determination, effort, want to, physicality, speed, fearlessness, drive, and focus to the team goals no matter what it is. 

What do you love the most about the game of football? 

I love everything about the game I’ve only been playing 5 years, so everything is still exciting to me most people have been playing 10+ years so there’s not much left to see however I’m still fairly new to the game so I’m enjoying everything still. 

Who is the most underrated player you’ve played with and why?
